Freelance Senior Writer

<p><span style="font-weight: 300;">Instrument is excited to connect with writers who are open to contract engagements for immediate and future needs with the agency. We are looking for enthusiastic collaborators who are passionate about their craft and flexible in their work engagements, joining our teams for a few months, a few weeks or just a few days. We encourage you to submit your materials with as much detail as possible so we are able to thoughtfully consider you for freelance needs as they arise.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 300;">We’re looking for writers to contribute to every imaginable type of project, and advocate for the importance of well-chosen words in every space. From finely-tuned marketing copy for websites to bold brand manifestos, you’re fluent in the digital space and can weigh the importance of every ounce of copy. As a consummate word nerd, you know how to balance perfect grammar with the cadence of a brand’s voice and tone. At every stage in a project’s life-cycle, you find, manifest, and sharpen narratives; uncovering insights and crafting language that anchors and inspires teammates and clients. You’ll most often be embedded in our team, rather than working as a satellite, so your contributions will be fully integrated into our workflow.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>What You’ll Do: </strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Write clearly, quickly, and efficiently</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Become an embedded member of a multi-disciplinary team in a highly collaborative environment with diverse perspectives and expertise</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Dive into understanding a client's business and care about their problems</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Help synthesize insights from project discovery to empower your team</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Provide options and rationale as your work is considered by teammates and clients alike</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Craft concepts, narratives, marketing and UX copy, manifestos, scripts, storyboards, and whatever other deliverables communicate a client’s message</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Write in a human voice for technical concepts and digital products</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Collaborate inclusively and openly with multi-disciplinary teammates and clients </span> <br><br></li> </ul> <p><strong>What You’ll Bring:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Demonstrated experience shipping exceptional work, with your role clearly defined on each project in your portfolio</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Experience working on cross-disciplinary teams</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Ability to move quickly to prove out ideas</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Strong understanding of current industry tools with the ability to adapt to new technologies</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Strategic problem-solving skills and the capacity to distill complex information into meaningful concepts, ideas, and designs</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Strong written and verbal communication skills</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 300;"><span style="font-weight: 300;">Curiosity, humility, and a passion for doing great work</span></li> </ul> <p> </p>
